For about thirty nail biting minutes, players' nerves are tested to the limit by the threat of the ticking bomb. A card is drawn bearing two or more letters. The variable length fuse (10 secs to 1 minutes) is set and the ticking Bomb is passed to the first player. In turn players must shout out a word that contains the letters on the card and pass on the Bomb before it goes off! Words must be in common use and can only be used once in each round. Players may challenge at their discretion. All too often the word you think of, as you wait your turn, is used by a preceding player and even those who boast the largest vocabularies suddenly find their minds go completely blank as the infernal Bomb ticks away. Can be played by any number of players, but be warned - not for the shy and retiring!
